Wild Thing !

By MikeGreaves
Recently, when I went to Minnions, on Bodmin Moor,Cornwall, to shoot some landscapes with the old mining ruins, I came across a couple of fields with wild rabbits running around. As soon as they saw me they disappeared instantly back into their burrows. That is , all except this one, who sat in the sunshine and kept a wary eye on me from quite a distance. I had just bought a Sigma 120-400 OS lens, for use in taking photos of warships around Plymouth Sound, and this shot was taken using this.
